Brady Fentress and Trey Thies had 3 hits apiece and Tristan Rinehart had a huge 2-run triple as the SD Knights defeated Connersville 5-4. Fentress drove in the first run with a fielder’s choice grounder in the 3rd, which tied the score 1-1. After the Spartans took a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the inning, the Knights needed to mount a comeback, which they did in the 5th. Ethan Getz had a 1-out walk, followed by a single by Fentress and an RBI single by Thies. Rinehart then followed with his triple to tie the score. After a scoreless 6th for both teams, Fentress led off the 7th with a double and Thies followed with his third hit, a single to center. Rinehart walked to load the bases, bringing up Jace Leonard. Leonard singled sharply to left to drive in Fentress with the go ahead run. The Spartans got out of the jam with no further runs, but could not manage any runs in the bottom of the frame. Thies pitched 4 1/3 shutout innings to earn the win. Getz finished with 1 single on the night, as did Adam Dixon and Kane Curry.
